Chef Bhoomidev Hurkhoo, fondly referred to as Sawan, originates from the picturesque island of Mauritius. His culinary voyage, marked by serendipity, led him from a background in hospitality onto a path of culinary passion. Following his training in Mauritius, Sawan honed his skills on the enchanting Seychelles Island, where he played a pivotal role in the opening of the island's first 5-star hotel. Guided by renowned French chefs, this experience marked a turning point in his culinary career.

His journey continued to South Africa, where he embraced a new challenge as part of an esteemed team at Emperors Palace. In South Africa, Sawan developed a profound appreciation for the nation's diverse culinary landscape and rich culture. This remarkable expedition has now brought Chef Sawan to Verdicchio, where he passionately explores Mediterranean cuisine.
